Absolutely luscious, Pam!

The complimentary colors are done beautifully in this painting, not too strong, just enough to make a nice glow.

I just want to eat your blueberries! I love them. Both the fruit and your painting...

Best of luck at the upcoming fall show!

Beautiful little blueberries. Love your use of blue with its greyed down complement.

Wonderful painting and I love the subject matter and the idea of painting produce with the seasons. You really captured the light film that covers blueberries perfectly. I enjoy your work.

Your color and texture are perfect! They look good enough to eat!!!

Pam Holnback said...

aapsoSherry, Thank you so much!

Thank you Carol, So glad you noticed that I purposefully chose the fabric color!

Cathyann, Thanks!

Thank you Susan, I do feel healthy today after eating a whole box!

Nancy, Thanks. Always appreciate your comments.

Thank you Loriann, I couldn't have chosen a strong complement or I would have had a Bronco painting!

Nancy, Thank you. The shop connected w/ the garden carries my paintings and I've been changing out the dailies to match the seasons. That was the owner's idea and I think it's great!

Thank you Claire, Interesting how blueberries really are a grayish blue.

What a great idea, wish I had a painting group! Beautiful little intimate painting you have today. Will you frame all your paintings for that show and sale?

Love the blueberries. On of my favorite paintings that I did was of blueberries, I had an "itch" to do them again but no time. So thanks for scratching the itch, a beautiful painting.

You've set up and painted this in the best, off-center and most perfect way, great variety in the blues too

I really like this painting. The color is great and the paint quality is luscious!

Amy Hillenbrand said...

What a great little painting, the simplicity of it is genius and as always the brushstrokes of fab!

Sandra Galda said...

love this ! small fruit and yet so full of design and color..i love blueberries. I am using them in a set up now and you have inspired me so much1 This is a super job!

Pam Holnback said...

Thank you Joan, Yes, everyone needs a painting group. It's great support, camaraderie, and fun. I won't be framing everything. I have 2 baskets filled w/ dailies on a table. I have 2 window shutters that I've attached together from which I hang some pieces. I'll put up a photo after the show.

Thanks Kelley, You can find the time to do more blueberries. One piece!!

Thank you Mary, Sometimes the set-up really takes awhile. You'd think it would be easy and quick. But, often I move things around for a long time!

Linda, Thank yo so much.

Sandra, Thank so much. I look forward to seeing your piece!

That soft shimmer in the complementary color is just right for the berries.
Very fresh... just as everyone wants with their produce!
